In response to Kathy Gyngell: The Left’s spurious rewriting of history. Now it blames Mrs Thatcher for the permissive society, sfin wrote:
There is only one reason for the decline in “Christian Britain” and that is the established church’s abandonment of leadership in Christian, moral authority and its embrace of “change” as a “progressive” force in national life.
All the weight and moral force (not to mention, the poetry) of the ancient liturgy was jettisoned in little more than a decade. The result? The CoE is viewed as little more than a rather eccentric arm of our social services.
God doesn’t swing to the whims of man. He is conservative.
